The subtitle hints that winter will make its appearance in the middle of summer. Children and adults alike will be able to make a snowman, become warm in the "U Podivína" pub or fish for a Christmas carp. The evening programme will be filled with concerts and also with a theatrical performance tailor-made for this event called "The Philosophers' Stone or Smart Guys' Rock". This performance is filled with modern dance, light shows and big-screen projections. Bedtime reading will conclude the programme.
